WWE Breaking News: Ashley Massaro Released

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IJuly 9, 2008

Another day, another released from the WWE.

Today, WWE Diva Ashley Massaro was officially released from the company.

But it seems that she left on her terms. Last week, she posted on her “myspace” page that she will be asking for an early release from her WWE contract because she needs to attend to her seven year-old daughter, who is “not well”.

Massaro entered the WWE in 2005 thanks to the WWE Raw Diva Search. She beat out seven other finalists to win the competition, which gave her $250,000 and a WWE contract.

Since then, she hasn’t looked back. She was known as the WWE’s Punk-Diva.

Massaro’s time in the WWE will probably not be remembered for what she did in the ring, but what she did outside the ring.

Following the footsteps of several other WWE Divas, in April of 2007, she was chosen to be on the cover of Playboy Magazine. She also was a contestant on CBS’s hit reality-show Survivor. She even appeared on The CW’s hit show Smallville, and appeared in Timbaland’s music video “Throw It On Me”

In May of 2008, Massaro's name was involved in some controversy. Rolling Stone Magazine reported that Massaro was employed by a Los Angeles escort agency. The agency is currently being investigated by the F.B.I, which makes some sceptics think that this is the REAL reason Ashley is leaving the WWE.

Personally, I have a hard time to believe she should lie about having a sick daughter.

Although she wasn’t the best in the ring, and the WWE can do without her, I think it’s admirable that she is leaving the company to tend her daughter. It shows she has her priorities straight. I would like to wish her, and her daughter, good luck.
